My guess (based on long mulling over of what they have and have not released over the years) is that someone in the GD family is really particular about not uneven patches in releases, even if they're surrounded by a lot of good music-making. While I don't mind the occasional rough bit, I can see where they'd be coming from.

The boys were exploratory and so only really tight and interesting some of the time. We're used to taking the wheat with the chaff, but other segments of the music-buying public would listen to some of the stuff that we endure and ask, "What is that sh*t?" The Road Trip concept allows them to release the best parts of shows that presumably have iffy parts too.

Anyway, what a HUGE relief to have more material coming out, and the promise of still more on the way. I'm not likely to perform an oral examination of this particular gratuitous equine.

Oooh, 68 road trip...ungungungung!
